If you love Boom N Zoom and hate Turn N Burn like me, then it's Corsairs all the way. The line at least gives you an enjoyable tier 6 and 7 with a tier 9 worth grinding for. I'm on the F2G right now and hating it, but it's better than hating the whole Hawker line from tier 6 all the way to tier 10.

 

I put Ultimate LWWF and LWPU on the F2G. Now it can turn with the bot multiroles and altitude fighters that used to eat it for breakfast. It's a fun plane finally, if you like flipping zone after zone.

 

Grinding the XP-72 now too. It's a variation on the same theme: focus on capping, but build this one for max cruise speed. With Ultimate Polish and Uprated Engine, it can outrun most of the planes that can out turn it.

The entire British line is good, with the exception of the Sea Hawk. Hunter is great. 

 

Corsair line has its highs in tiers VI and VIII. 

Republic (? whatever you want to call the xp44 line) line is just cantankerous. It has a couple good planes in the line, but overall I recommend making this line the last. 

 

Good luck.

Well the OP is asking about FIRST line, i.e. for a multirole greenhorn.

Which means, aside from simple OPness we also need to consider easiness to master.

And I don't think anyone would disagree that just about every line in the USA tech tree is harder to master than its counterparts in other countries.

 

For Multiroles I'd say from easiest to hardest would be UK>Corsair>Fw>P-47>I-21.

Note that I'm talking about learning curve, not OP ness.

I think you missed a few, if you were intending to list all of them. For one, at Tier VIII-X there’s the Japanese Shinden family. Great planes, but like the Yak Light Fighter line, which are also great planes, kind of left behind as they aren’t all that fast and they certainly don’t have good altitude performance, precluding them from the option of taking on any Bomber but a bomber played on the deck, but then again, they would still have problems keeping up.

 

 

I’m not sure what to make of the Yak Multiroles, other than to say they take a reasonable amount of skill and low ping to do well in, but the skill part, by Tier X shouldn’t be too big an issue, leaving only ping as an obstacle in between your average Yak Multirole player and really good performances. Yes, one DOES have to know the limitations of their aircraft, yes, one DOES have to position at least not TOO horribly, but this is true of EVERY Multirole, especially at Tier X(I’ve watched many a Tier X Multirole gameplay video, and always noticed how important positioning is in them).


An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

Yak MRF are all about the derp.  If you're not into the derp guns, the Yak MRF line might not suit you well.

Soviet MR are either easy & awesome or pretty terrible depending on if you can successfully land the derps.

For me despite my quite high ping I actually have had a real good experience with the Soviet derps & I-215 is king of derps.

C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

There is one other thing I must note about them - their speed control is hilarious. They maintain excellent control all the way up to stall and their tier 9 has an interesting combination of superb controllability, ridiculous acceleration and incredible deceleration which makes it surprisingly easy to fight at the edge of a stall

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

They just don't fit the multirole class. If you're looking for a playstyle of capturing zones, defending a little, and then capturing more zones look somewhere other than the Soviet MRF line. This is more about staying in a friendly zone and laughing at every enemy that makes the mistake of ignoring you.

These are my two favorite lines in the game.  You can't go wrong, but I'd do the British line first.
